It’s been a crazy few weeks since Christmas and it’s been so frenetic that I’ve barely had time to sleep, much less keep up with this blog. The girls are both doing well, despite some winter runny noses and here and there, and Noelle and Bailey are both growing like weeds.
Bailey loves preschool and although a challenge at times for her teachers, she is a smart, sweet girl who shows empathy for others and continues to bring joy to those around her. She is very imaginative and loves playing make believe with her Disney princesses as well as her purple butterfly pillow pet, which Santa brought her for Christmas. She is obsessed with purple butterflies, and everything revolves around them. It’s cute but sometimes her obsession borders on overboard, since nighttime can be a challenge if certain things are missing from her bed.
Noelle is a spunky little girl and she loves to smile. She has started laughing, albeit one syllable retorts. She is also rolling over and (gasp!) loves sleeping on her belly. Her sister was the same way. She’s still up a few times a night to nurse – more to comfort herself than anything, and she loves being held. Matt calls her “the hitchhiker.” We’ve probably spoiled her, but we just love her so much and she is so stinkin’ cute.
Things are going pretty well, even though I wish I was getting more sleep at night. I can’t complain, though. We have 2 healthy beautiful children and they are the joy of our lives. We thank God for them everyday!
